Time out...

Monarchs

Had to add another note. Doesn’t have anything to do with wine, but it’s just something I find interesting. This time of year it finally starts to get really nice around here. I mean the weather gets really nice. So this morning, as I often do, I was up and out cycling. Ideal conditions today though. About 70 degrees, sunny skies, no wind. I did a looping route that took me out to Volente by the lake and then back.

So, the interesting thing is that at this time of year, Monarch butterflies arrive in central Texas as they migrate south. Based on that web site I have linked to, sounds like today may have been catching the tail end of them in this area, but they were definitely out in force and heading south. Not a bad way to spend the morning – biking along with the butterflies.

We have had sunny days here this week. So good after winter.Your bike ride with the monarchs sounds fabulous. Then ther is always the chance you might see Lance out biking also?

As a matter of fact, I have seen Lance and his entourage out riding once. He's back in Austin now and next weekend is his annual Ride for the Roses benefit ride. He usually pokes along with the rest of the 6500 other riders on that one though.
